Throughout my 17 years at Kempenfelt Bay School, I have worked with grades JK through 8 as a Core French teacher. In addition to this role, I have also taught English as a second language and worked as a Learning Strategist and Assistive Technologist. Prior to my role at KBS, I was a teaching assistant at Au Jardin du Soleil, a French Nursery School in Barrie, Ontario.
JK to Grade 5 French Language Teacher.
I believe that learning a second language is a great asset to the cognitive process. It helps students learn the mechanics of a language and therefore makes them more effective in editing and writing in English.
I believe in taking risks in learning in order to stay current, knowledgeable and open-minded to an ever changing world. Taking an interest in other people and their culture makes life interesting and broadens one’s ability to further enhance a personal education experience for everyone.
What I like most about KBS is the sense of community I feel with colleagues and the KBS families. I have enjoyed many adventures throughout the years and I am excited to be part of the next chapter.
I was one of the founding teachers of Kempenfelt Bay School. I love going to live theatre of any kind and have performed with the Kempenfelt Community Players. I have volunteered with Theatre By the Bay and I support the Arts and Culture in Barrie. I can often be seen attending a monthly foreign film. I have a passion for family history and have become quite a genealogist.
